The more I am tinkering with the time and temp the more I am really enjoying this. It is inexpensive dust in a bag green tea that has been roasted over charcoal. I used warm water, no where near boiling. In fact, it was cool enough for me to sip right away. Steeped about 2 ½ minutes. This is just a pleasant warm roasty sip. It feels like milk on the tongue. Its not going to blow your socks off but it is a nice cup of comfort.
